How To Draw King Von

Drawing an intricate portrait of the recently deceased artist King Von can be overwhelming for novice artists, but fear not, there are steps you can take to achieving an amazing picture of the star. Before you jump right into the creative process, it’s essential to brush up on the basics of drawing, perspective and shading to ensure you have a good foundation of the techniques required to properly pay tribute to the beloved rap star.

The first step in completing a portrait of King Von is to have a reference image of the artist to copy. This could be a image off the internet, a photo you have taken yourself, or a photo of a music video you have paused. Even though you can freeform your portrait, having a reference image helps jumpstart the creative process and will help with any measurements or angles you want to use.

Once you are happy with the reference image, choose a quality piece of paper and begin by sketching out the outline of King Von’s head. Utilizing guidelines, such as drawing two horizontal lines for the eyes and one for the mouth, will give the portrait its basic form. This will make the remainder of the inking process easier, plus it looks professional and even adds to the overall aesthetic of the image.

With most of the measurements and sketches out of the way, it’s time to go in with your pen and begin inking in the finer details of King Von’s portrait. To make the image look even more realistic, use a variety of patterns and textures when filling in the detail. Additionally, add shading around the eyes, nose, and lips to create an even more lifelike effect. If you’re feeling up to the challenge, experiment with techniques such as crosshatching, stippling, and blending to create the most detailed King Von portrait the world has ever seen.

Once your masterpiece is complete, use a black sharpie to make all the outlines darker, taking care to ensure the lines are nice and even. After that, you can use marker and acrylic paint to further personalize the image. Try shading with a darker color around the facial features to give the face more definition, or add a background to really pull the picture together.

If you want to take your portrait-making skills to the next level, try using charcoal or pastel pencils to fill in areas with coal grey or light brown. This will add depth to the face and make it appear as if the image has been almost carved out of the paper. Or, you can experiment with caricature-style images, exaggerating King Von’s features to create an even more exciting portrait.

For those looking to proudly display their King Von portrait, running the paper through a laminator will give extra protection, plus it will look a lot more professional. To add to the lifespan of the artwork, consider adding a thin layer of fixative to the surface of the paper, as this will prevent the ink from fading over time.

Spending the time to truly capture King Von’s essence in a portrait will not only make a beautiful artwork, but also a wonderful tribute to the rapper. Make sure to keep in mind the basics of drawing and experimentation with new techniques as you begin the drawing process, and you’ll be sure to create a portrait that will be treasured for years to come.

Next, draw the clothing and accessories King Von is wearing. Start with a basic visualization of the clothing – what are the colors? What textures does it have? What details can you observe? Then, use shading and highlights to depict the clothing to look more realistic. Think about the jacket, pants, shoes and other accessories King Von is wearing and use a thin brush and different shades of color to add extra detail and dimension to the clothing.

To draw King Von’s facial features, observe the shapes, angles and lines that characterize his face. Use a soft drawing pencil and begin drawing the proportions of his face. Then, look closely at his eyes, mouth, nose and hair – but not too closely so as to distort the portrait. Pay attention to the textures of his face, such as wrinkles and pores, to ensure that the image looks as lifelike as possible.

Focusing on the small details can make all the difference in a portrait. For King Von, pay attention to his facial ornaments, such as the piercings and scars he has. Using a fine tip marker or pencil, try adding these features as shadow outlines on the portrait. To give the image more depth, use a thicker marker for the erasure shreds and allow some of the highlights to show in contrast to the shadows.

Finally, finish off the portrait with a few finishing touches. Consider playing around with the contrast, brightness, and other color settings of the image, and create a digital version of your portrait to post online as a musical tribute to the King. You can also digitally edit the portrait or order a print canvas version of your artwork from professional websites, to transform your painting into a one-of-a-kind creation.
